Folk Figure. She was known best as "Poker Alice", a cigar-smoking, gun-toting professional poker dealer. She was widowed three different times, and turned to gambling as a way to support herself and seven children. Her winnings for one night would sometimes be up to $6,000. She also was a bootlegger and madam. Because of her strong religious beliefs, she always closed her establishment on Sundays.
